I came here after reading a story about the CMBG in Yankee Magazine, and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my visit. From the hosts at the handsome Visitor's Center to the staff at the Cafe, everyone was friendly and informative on an extremely busy July afternoon.
I'm not even really a gardener or flower lover, but there is so much more to this place than flowers alone. There's themed areas, like the Five Senses, Meditation, Rhododendron and Children's Gardens. Throughout there are not only educational signs, but water features, sculpture and benches positioned strategically for rest and enjoyable views. It's really a soothing, almost spiritual place celebrating the careful cultivation and respect of nature. There isn't an inch of land that isn't beautiful, and beautifully cared for.
So worth taking a detour to visit! I know it's hard to tear yourself away from the shore while in Maine, but come slightly inland for a few hours. You won't regret it!
